[Our Story]

After Jackie got engaged and was suddenly a bride-to-be herself, she was shocked at the high cost of wedding dresses and quickly realized the wedding she had imagined (saw in magazines, Pinterest, and on bridal blogs) would cost a small fortune.

So, like any scrappy girl with designer taste, she looked for another way! eBay, marketplaces, sample sales; where were the end-of-season sales for bridal gowns? The 70% off sales for the Valentino and Elie Saab gowns she lusted after? She couldn’t find them, but what she did find were other women like her trying to buy and sell their wedding gowns and save money.

It felt like the bridal industry wanted brides to feel cheap or like they were breaking the rules by not paying full price for a designer gown.

In 2012 Jackie started NearlyNewlywed with the $$$ she got from reselling her wedding dress and the little money left after her own wedding a few months before. She launched out of her living room with the support of her loving husband, family and women all over the US who sent her their gowns and believed in what she wanted to build.

Every dress we help sell or bride we help get a gown she loves, for less, is a building block to our bridal revolution.

We hope you enjoy shopping and selling on Nearly Newlywed and help us share the love!

Can't say enough great things!

Nearly Newlywed's team was absolutely incredible from start to finish! I wasn't planning on buying a pre-loved gown, but after reading about the company's background I was hooked - why do brides have to feel shame about getting a great deal on a dream gown? I loved the flexibility to return the dress if it didn't fit or I simply didn't like it. Christie was incredible and provided phenomenal customer service, especially as I was trying to receive the dress by Christmas so I could show to family and friends gathered for the holiday. I was able to afford my absolute DREAM gown from a designer who doesn't even sell anywhere near my home, for a fraction of the original cost. My goal is to hopefully have a great time wearing it at my wedding, and then re-sell it for a bit less to another bride who has her eyes on this pricy designer (and make a bit of my money back, because why not!). I felt secure in my purchase thanks to the "white glove treatment" I bought at check out, which meant I had extensive videos and photos of my dress sent to me before purchase. All and all, a truly fantastic experience! So glad something like this exists and will be telling all my friends about this :)

Flawless experience from start to finish

I can't say enough about how great my Nearly Newlywed experience was. I found a beautiful dress, but was going to be traveling and unable to receive delivery. The team worked with the seller to delay shipment of my dress - they were astonishingly proactive, responsive, and helpful. Can't recommend highly enough!!

Got my dream dress for less than $500

I had such a good experience with Nearly Newlywed. I found a gorgeous gown in great shape that was selling for 80% off the retail price. I love that they have a return policy, so I took the leap and luckily, it fit great! I brought it to a seamstress today, during my 5 day return window, just to make sure the adjustments I needed made to the dress could happen and there wasn't anything I was missing. It's good to go and I can't wait to wear it in August!
